New thriller series 'Fool Me Once' is the latest Netflix adaptation from author Harlan Coben. The show will star Michelle Keegan as former army captain and special-ops helicopter pilot Maya Stern, whose life is turned upside down following the brutal murder of her husband Joe (played by Richard Armitage). However, when she instals a "nanny-cam” in her home to ensure the safety of her daughter, she sees unthinkable footage that leads her to believe her husband might not be dead after all.
It has been revealed that 'Peaky Blinders' and 'The Tower' star Emmett J. Scanlan will also have a major role in the series. He will play Shane Tessier, one of Maya's friends from her army platoon. James Northcote, best known for playing Aldhelm in 'The Last Kingdom', will also have a role in the series but no details have yet been released about his part.
The impressive cast will also include Joanna Lumley who stars as Maya's overprotective mother Judith and Adeel Akhtar as Detective Sami Kierce.
Ever since Coben struck a five-year deal with Netflix in 2018, the streamer has been adapting the US author’s works with titles including 'The Stranger', 'Stay Close' and 'Safe'.
No release date has been announced but it's expected to be released in late 2023.
